Wednesday Morning Commute Update with Final Pencil Prediction

by MCS Staff

Not much has changed since our previous update letting you know not to expect much out of potential winter weather tomorrow morning.

Flurries or light snow may fall between 7am and 1pm tomorrow. If anything falls, there will more than likely be no disruption to travel as roads will just be wet.

The National Weather Service is referring to this system as a “minor disturbance” that may produce a period of light snow or flurries between 7am and 10am.

Per the NWS:

Temperatures will be near freezing for most areas early Wednesday before rising above freezing by mid-morning. If light snow occurs, it could coat untreated surfaces.

The tweet below shows how the storm looked over the last 16 runs of the GFS model (it runs four times a day, so you’ll see how it looked for the last four days). It goes from a storm that could have brought a couple inches to our area, to flurries and maybe a dusting.

Pencil Prediction for Wednesday, December 8: 1 Pencil

COME ON MOCOSNOW!! Mcps has closed for the rain and wind before you know they will close for this. With the stickage and slippage that will be happening with the wet roads, I just can’t see how you only gave this one pencil. It’s at least 4.75 pencils rounded up to 5. There is no possible way we get school tomorrow. The bad takes continue again this year. MCPS will find a way to make up for the lack of snow days last year and you know it. I’m just not even going to show up

Rdog you couldn’t be more right. Every year the predictions are lowballs. I agree it’s 5 pencils and you know what throw in an eraser and the pencil pouch I traded for yesterday in school. In other words NO SCHOOL tomorrow. Stickage and slippage are real problems that need to be addressed and MCPS will have no choice but to close.

Come on Moco snow. Only 1 pencil. It’s the first of the year get us kids hype…also you know mcps will be playing it safe for the first snow of the year. My own personal prediction is 5 pencils put the books away quit studying and stop your homework–there will be no school! (full disclaimer it probably will not snow so actually get your work done) In the end though, stickage and slippage will prevail.
